These romantic retreats, dreamy villas and boutique boltholes will earn you serious brownie points this Valentine's Day. From a hotel for only two people in Cambodia - yes, it exists - to your own Rapunzel-esque tower in Cornwall for a weekend straight out of a fairytale, these romantic holidays are ideal for treating your loved one, or planning an unforgettable marriage proposal (you can thank us later!).

Whether you're looking to get away this February or book your couples'-only getaway for summer 2015, these year-round ideas offer the ultimate in romance, luxury and utter seclusion.

Lovers of all things traditional and cosy can hole up in a pretty cottage in Provence, Istria or Suffolk, while those after a holiday like no other can sail off into the sunset on a yacht just for two in Indonesia, spend the night under the stars in a South African treehouse, or go 155 metres below ground in Sweden for quality time alone in the world's deepest underground hotel suite.
